Hey wassup everyone, Ive bought quit a few dvds from gnomon workshop. I have the first 3 volumes of Scott Robertson (AWesome) and now i just bought vol 1&2 of dusso and wanna learn matte painting. Easier said then done. I read in the other post about Dusso dvd, and everyone is right, he doesnt really talk about his tools, or their settings.

I just dont understand in photoshop what kinda brush is he using to get that brush quality.??

Hi,

Here are some links to help you start getting into matte painting:

If you don't understand Dusso's painting method, here are some advice, be persistent, if you really love it, do it all the time to get better. Don't forget that the quality of your matte painting depends basically on your traditional art skills, so develop them as much as you can. Study painting, learn more about Photoshop tools, have an understanding of photography. As soon as you get better you will start to understand why Dusso does that, how he does that, and the brushs stuffs.
